Elevating a Legacy: The Most Stylish Pulsar Yet

The Pulsar NS400Z embodies the dynamism and muscularity of the NS style while integrating modern floating panels. A striking lightning bolt DRL characterizes the aggressive new front fascia. Premium elements, such as Champagne Gold USD forks and carbon fiber graphics, add to its allure. The sleek ‘NS400’ branding on the bikini fairing and a sporty tail section with underbelly exhaust contribute to a visually striking and aerodynamic package.

Unleashing Untamed Performance: The Fastest Pulsar to Date

The Pulsar NS400Z isn’t just about heritage; it’s a trailblazer in terms of performance. As the largest Pulsar ever built, the NS400Z packs a serious punch with its 373.27cc engine, delivering an impressive 40 PS and 35 Nm of torque.

Thrilling Innovation: Access to Advanced Rider Aids

Equipped with ride-by-wire technology, the NS400Z ensures precise throttle response and smoother handling. Ride modes and a slipper clutch facilitate seamless gear changes, enhancing acceleration and deceleration for improved control and rider confidence.

Versatility Redefined: Ride Modes for Varied Conditions

The Pulsar NS400Z enhances rider capability with advanced ride modes catering to diverse conditions: Road (for smooth acceleration and stable ABS in daily use), Rain (offering limited power and conservative ABS for wet roads), Sport (providing heightened throttle response and maximum stopping power for spirited riding), and Off-road (optimized low-end torque and controlled braking for rough terrain).

Tech-Loaded Thrills: Elevating the Riding Experience

Loaded with cutting-edge technology, the Pulsar NS400Z promises an exhilarating ride. Advanced 43mm USD forks and Ride-by-Wire technology, coupled with smart 4-way switches, ensure peak performance and control. LED projector headlights with DRLs offer exceptional visibility, complemented by a full suite of LED taillights, blinkers, and hazard lights.

Beyond just a motorcycle, the NS400Z delivers a connected experience, with Bluetooth connectivity enabling features like turn-by-turn navigation and music control, enhancing rider focus and enjoyment.

Precision and Safety: The Foremost Priorities

Prioritizing rider safety, the NS400Z boasts a comprehensive suite of braking and control features. Dual-channel ABS with Combined ABS technology ensures exceptional stopping power and prevents wheel lock-up across various riding conditions. Switchable Electronic Traction Control (ETC) further enhances grip in Sport and Off-road modes, empowering riders with greater control.

Adjustable levers (offering five steps) and large disc brakes (320mm front, 230mm rear) provide a comfortable and responsive feel. Wide tires (110/70-17 front, 140/70 R17 rear) optimize grip and handling. The long 1344mm wheelbase contributes to agile maneuvering, enabling riders to confidently tackle corners. The Hydroformed tubular Streetfighter handlebar not only reduces vibration (NVH) but also enhances stiffness for precise control, complementing the NS400Z’s overall aesthetic and performance.

Commenting on the launch, Sarang Kanade, President Motorcycle Business at Bajaj Auto Ltd., expressed, “The Pulsar NS400Z signifies more than just a new motorcycle; it epitomizes everything the Pulsar brand represents – sporty design, power, performance, and an unparalleled riding experience delivered to our passionate Pulsarmaniacs and sports motorcycle enthusiasts. It redefines the standards of sports motorcycling in India. Born out of engineering expertise, cutting-edge technology, and a profound understanding of what riders truly desire, the Pulsar NS400Z is an exceptional motorcycle for riders embarking on their biking journey or seeking an upgrade to a higher-capacity motorcycle. We are confident that with the introduction of the Pulsar NS400Z, Pulsar will further solidify its dominant leadership position in the sports segment.”
